I believe it to be a satircal statement of what "equality," as defined in this story, really is. "Everybody was finally equal" is ironic in that equality is meant to be a solution to humanity's disorder and unhappiness, but it only shifts them from one group to another. So equality is obtained in a literal since, but morally, the people are not equal. The question is if true equality and happiness can actually be obtained.
